Pattie Palmer-Baker lives in Portland, Oregon with her beloved husband and her quirky, elderly dachshund who writes odes to treats. Over the years of exhibiting her artwork – a combination of paste paper collages with her poetry in calligraphic form – she was surprised and delighted that people, despite what they may believe, do like poetry. In fact, many liked the poems better than the visual art. She now concentrates on writing.
Nominated for the Pushcart Poetry Prize, Palmer-Baker has been published in many journals including The Poeming Pigeon, VoiceCatcher, The Best of VoiceCatcher, Ghazal Page, Voices: The Art and Science of Psychotherapy, Calyx, and Phantom Drift. Her chapbook, The Color of Goodbye, was recently published by Kelsay Books: https://kelsaybooks.com/products/the-color-of-goodbye.

UPDATED Statement on Healthy Spaces from Art at the Cave: We want to provide a healthy space to enjoy art. We have been practicing safety precautions such as regular cleaning, social distancing and mask wearing.
As a result of the removal of the mask mandate effective March 12, 2022, we will no longer require the wearing of masks. We encourage you to continue to wear a mask if it makes you feel more comfortable, and we will supply masks and hand sanitizer at the door. As social distancing has become a norm, please be mindful some will still need a bit of personal space while inside the gallery.
